For one night only, Tess Daly is joined by Claudia Winkleman to present Strictly Come Dancing, as the 10 remaining couples take to the dancefloor.

This week, the stakes are even higher, as each couple are not only dancing to stay in the competition, but for the chance to dance at the iconic Wembley Arena next weekend.

While Len, Darcey, Bruno and Craig critique each couple, Claudia will be grilling the stars as soon as they come off the dancefloor before the phonelines open and the Strictly viewers cast their votes to save their favourites.

But which couple will the judges save, and which will leave the ballroom for the last time?

Among the usual sequins and spray tans there’s also a real treat in store, with two incredible performances. Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli will be thrilling audiences with Nessun Dorma, and from the other end of the music spectrum, The Wanted will be sending the crowd wild with their latest single.
